About Us

The Professional Development (PD) System Cost Analysis Tool helps States/Territories understand current investments and target resources for PD systems and initiatives that result in a well-qualified early childhood and school-age workforce. Those who determine PD system funding need to know how much money goes to what activities, if the investments align with the State/Territory priorities, how to measure effectiveness, and how to optimize intended outcomes. The PD Tool is jointly sponsored by Office of Child Care and Office of Head Start. about-us
